The perennial category continues to gain interest at the consumer level. Homeowners seem to want more “permanent” landscape fixtures. They also want low maintenance and season-long color.
Vaughn Fletcher, a monthly contributor in GPN magazine, visited the spring premier trial at Costa Farms in Miami. He evaluated both annual and perennial introductions for 2019. And in last month’s GPN, he shared some of his insights on the top-performing new perennial varieties.
He says these new perennials “produced dramatic, eye-catching flower presentations.”
If you’re looking to expand your perennial offering, look no further. Here are some trialed performers that demonstrated superior performance, along with commentary from Fletcher.
